Public Gets Rare Charrette in Abu Dhabi

In a region where public participation is often excluded from the planning process, urban planners are hosting a charrette in Abu Dhabi.

The emirates Urban Planning Council is hosting the first public participation session for its Abu Dhabi 2030 plan.

"The Charette session for downtown Al Ain witnessed the UPC team of urban planners present an outline of the proposed community facilities for a diverse population including utility, transportation, parking strategies, landscape, courtyard (housing concepts) and mixed use community with affordable and luxury housing opportunities for locals and expatriates."
